    Go into Language and Keyboards and ensure that the Swype keyboard is enabled.

    Then go to any text input field and long-press, select "INput Method" and then select Swype, and the keyboard will change to the Swype keyboard.

    Take the Swype tutorial and try the keyboard to see if you like it. I (and many) LOVE it, and will use no other keyboard. Others not so much. :)

    Basically it allows you to drag your finger across the keyboard to type words...quite cool.

    Only problem I have with Swype is the double letters. Droid 2 screen doesn't seem responsive enough to do it all the time. Oh well, isn't this why we got a Droid 2, the physical keyboard? :)
